Does anyone have any big plans for the Chronoscope expansion? I'm getting it because those futuristic dinosaurs just called to me. They look like they'll be fun to paint.

 

Other than painting them for fun though I have no use for them. Everyone I play with is dedicated to D&D 5e, so I've been working on a sci-fi system adapted from 5e. The hope is that I can keep it enough like 5e that they'll give it a chance.

 

I didn't get it.

I do want those Scifi Dinos, I'm kinda hoping they will be released in metal.Íf not, I will get them solo.

And maybe some of those traffic cones, cause terrain is always cool.

 

The rest didn't appeal to me or I already had it in metal.

Me too. The dinos and traffic cones were all that interested me, so I can wait for retail.

I haven't decided on that one yet. If I do get it, the figures will (hopefully) get used in some Sci-Fi skirmish games.

There is something about Dreadmere that has me wanting to give Baba Yaga's hut duck feet instead of chicken feet....

 

*EDIT* I am picturing the hut paddling slowly through the mere....

And I'm imagining it quack.

 

As far as the Chronoscope goes, there just isn't enough value in there for me.  The dinos just don't do much for me, and if I wanted more of the expansion I wouldn't hesitate.  I really dig 314-316, and want to see more of those kind of aliens released.  The Martians (309-311) are ok, despite the awkward run pose.  I love 335-338 (traffic cones, jerry cans, and pylons), but that's it.

That running pose does look weird. I am buying two sets of the sci-fi terrain though so maybe I'm biased when it comes to the Chronoscope expansion.

I am wondering if it was not the first expansion out the gate, if it would have done better?

 

I think it's more content than timing. I mean, it has the fewest figures, and, aside from the dinos, nothing really fabulous. It's also not as cohesive as the other expansions (with the exception of fan favs, but that's just all over the place). I think if they'd had few different races with more variety in that race it would have worked better.

Which led to the mental image of the hut laying an egg.... Which hatches into a doghouse on duckling feet....

But does it quack?  That's the question!

 

I'm also a little concerned about winter migrations...

I'm actually the least excited about the future dinos as compared to any other part of Chronoscope. The T-rex has uses, but I'll likely be selling all the rest, or trading them with folks for more Rexes. I want a full squad of those.

With shipping and VAT, I have to think a bit more about what to get. I did not go for the whole core set, nice as it is. I really really tried hard to only get what I needed (chough) ... more like "don't have lots of that yet" ... and what I would pay that amount of money for if I saw it in a store and not in a great Kickstarter (and my second name is Scrooge as far as spending money in stores is concerned).

I got the Stygian Barge and the Dreadmere Expansion ... and I might add a thing or two, but I'll probably only spend half of what I spent on Bones III.

      About
      The concept for Mother of Dragons was born a few years ago.
      I still recall seeing the beautiful illustration made by Stéphane Wootha Richard posted on his Facebook profile and I fell in love with her immediately – I knew immediately that I wanted to bring her to life in miniature form.
      Fortunately, Stéphane was also very excited about the idea of a collaboration.
      We were inspired and driven to start working on the project that we both felt so passionate about and now, with much pride we can finally share this project with you all.

      What you see here required 2 years of committed development, during which time, our team has created and implemented many variants until we made of it a full range, indeed in addition to the varied scale of the main subject , you will find unique versions such as the bust or the lovely "super deformed" miniature. In fact, this is the characteristic of all of our Kickstarter campaigns — we always enjoy experimenting with new products and offering you something you've never seen before.
      Every successful kickstarter campaign enable us to share our dreams with the most supportive community in the world.

      In Mother of Dragons you will find exciting new figures as well as numerous artefacts (artefacts? – I hear you say. Exactly)! Be ready for an ancient Dragon Jar, or a real dragon’s tooth. One thing is certain. They will not be the only exclusives to catch your attention.

      Now with your continued help and support; it’s time to bring this project to life!
      So why support this project?
      Well, first because you’re a hobbyist and a modeller and you can’t wait to lay your hands on a new figure.
      Second, because the Mother of Dragons will also appeal to your collector’s side; she will be the “queen” of your showcase, no matter the scale, you choose.
      Apart from the main subject of this campaign, as usual, we’re offering great deals, rewards, add-ons and freebies, indeed Kabuki Studio places great importance to Kickstarter and for this reason the benefits/conditions offered will never be seen again outside the campaign, not even in the pledge manager/late backer's option.

      Riccardo Agostini (Italy) – 1/50 scale

      KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE!
       
       
      What is this, and how does it work I hear you say?
      Well it’s simple. At some point during the campaign we will show some super-secret stuff that isn’t quite ready yet. You, as Kickstarter backers will have the exclusive first chance to grab some of this cool stuff.

      Any funds gathered from this boost will be added to the total campaign fund and will also go towards unlocking goodies for the qualifying pledges
       
       
      It’s simple, we need your support in order to fund the project and unlock all the amazing items we’ve designed!
      To donate, select a pledge amount and reward on either the right-hand side of a project page or after clicking the “Back this project” button and selecting “Continue”. From here you’ll be taken to a page where you can continue as a guest, or login if you already have an account.
      If you would like to continue as a guest, just enter your email address and select “Continue as Guest”.
      Next, fill in your payment details and take a minute to review your pledge details. When you’re ready, just click the green “Pledge” button and the job is done! Easy, isn’t it?

      During the campaign, thanks to your help, we will unlock several new rewards so you may want to review your current pledge, well how do you do that? To change your pledge amount, visit the project page and click the “Manage your pledge" button that appears next to your pledge amount and then select "Change your pledge" on the following page.
      From here, you’ll be able to adjust your pledge amount or choose a new reward tier you'd like to pledge for and your pledge amount will update automatically.
      If you don't want to receive a reward, select "Make a pledge without a reward" and enter your new pledge amount. Alternatively, you may change your pledge amount within the reward tier modal.

      Note: you are not adding to your existing pledge; the amount you enter will be the total amount collected if the project is successfully funded.
      Everything will be dispatched from Roma (Italy).
      You don’t have to be worried about customs tax because we’ll provide a special invoice for that purpose.
      All the pledges will be posted through DHL Express and the delivery time is brutally fast!
      18-24 hours for Europe
      2-3 days for rest of the world (customs clearance included)
      So even the delivery time is a “problem solved”.
      Average costs:
      up to 1kg to Europe 14.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to USA/Canada 19.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to Asia 31.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to Australia/South America 38.50 Euro
      We removed “Poste Italiane” from the carriers choice because the price difference is almost zero and the reliability of that carrier is particularly low, that means you could save 3 or 4 euro from shipping cost, but have great delays in your delivery or pay more in custom taxes, or even have the parcel lost.

      So, here's a game that I'm backing because my wife's crazy for train games: Railways of Nippon, a stand-alone expansion for Railways of the World
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2002188924/railways-of-nippon-the-next-train-stop-on-the-rotw
       
      Some of the benefits of this kickstarter include a new and improved rulebook, with a page for each expansion, new piece colors, and as a stretch goal we've got clear plastic 'ice' trains.
       
      Now, if I can just find a bunch of the train minis that Mayfair had for the Crayon Rail games...
